ELCA Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is the national church body of over 9000 Lutheran congregations. “We are church for the sake of the world, working for the common good.” God calls us to “Love our neighbor” and to embody Jesus Christ in our daily actions, through social service, and public witness for justice.
New England Synod is the regional expression of the ELCA, one of 65 synods across the country.
Reconciling in Christ is a designation of Lutheran congregations that welcome LGBTQIA+ people to all aspects of church life.
Camp Calumet is the New England Synod outdoor camp on the shores of Lake Ossipee in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where CLC members spend a winter weekend each year and where generations of children have attended summer resident camp and served as camp staff.
Thrivent, the financial services company, provides its members with small grants to carry out mission projects throughout the wider community. CLC members regularly apply for funds for special inititatives.
